    First and foremost, Dr Foxton takes time to listen to his patients - helpfully working with you to get to the route of the issue. Having seen Dr Foxton for several years, I have never walked away from an appt with any sense of uncertainty. Dr Foxton ensures you are fully informed through his manner and his considerable knowledge. I would not hesitate recommending Dr Foxton to any person with liver or gastro concerns.
